Things to see and do in Ponthir
Ponthir is surrounded by beautiful natural scenery, which ranges from rising hills and mountains to sweeping valleys, pretty rivers and striking mountains. The best of these are over in the Brecon Beacons National Park, but you’ll also find beauty spots like Cwmcarn Forest, Twmbarlwm, Sirhowy Valley Country Park and Llandegfedd Reservoir even closer to Ponthir.
If you like your ancient history, the small town of Caerleon just to the south is an absolute must. It’s home to an array of Roman remains and attractions, including an amphitheatre, fortress, baths and museum. And when you want to bring yourself back into modern times, the cities of Newport and Cardiff are only a short journey away.
Ponthir Church in Wales School is currently the only school in the village itself. It caters for infants and juniors, and is just off Caerleon Road. Conveniently, there’s a nursery next door, while the nearest secondary school is Caerleon Comprehensive. That’s rated as good by Estyn, with plenty more strong choices for all ages available in Newport.
Ponthir transport links
Ponthir is only a 10-minute drive from the centre of Newport, while it’s a similar journey to Cwmbran. Cardiff, meanwhile, is only around half an hour away, meaning it’s certainly possible to commute to the Welsh capital for work. The M4 motorway is also close by, providing direct access to the western part of South Wales, as well as South West England. This connects Ponthir with Bristol in little more than half an hour. The village doesn’t have a train station though, with the nearest ones in neighbouring Cwmbran and Newport.
The Ponthir property scene
Ponthir has a thriving property market, with prices considerably higher than the average across the rest of Torfaen. They’re also significantly higher than in neighbouring spots Newport and Cwmbran, showing this is a great area for investing your money.
Property can be quite scarce in the village due to its size, but you can find a collection of stunning new homes just a couple of miles away in Llantarnam. Cwmbran also has a good stock of new build homes, so give us a call today to enquire about your favourite house in the area. We can also tell you everything you need to know about the Help to Buy - Wales scheme when you do.
